    Give any thing ? if so did you run the squirrelmail setup script and check the server settings. If not check why your imap server is not running. Also check the permissions on the squirrelmail directory as far as your web server is concerned. Check apache error logs and stuff

    looks like your imap server is not running so you need to fix that.

    oh of course dont forget firewall issues maybe depending on your setup and try
    telnet localhost 143 rather than 192.168.0.201 just out of interest

    I use bsd so can't help you much further if your imapd server is not running
    good luck :)

    Do you want to connect using IMAP or POP3? For IMAP you must open port 143 in your firewall and probably change /etc/dovecot.conf.

    i want to use pop3 so the users be able to connect to server through Ms.outlook or any other program using pop3 protocol

    and SquirrelMail as webmail interface

    is this possible ????

    thanx

    Did you enable IMAP in /etc/dovecot.conf?
     
  15. EL7oot

    EL7oot New Member

    yes
    this my /etc/dovecot.conf *

    # Protocols we want to be serving:
    # imap imaps pop3 pop3s
    #protocols = imap imaps pop3
    protocols = imap pop3
    is this correct ??

    Looks ok. If your firewall doesn't block ports 110 and 143, your users should be able to use POP3 and IMAP.

    You said you followed the Perfect Setup in which Postfix gets installed, and now I see that you use Sendmail:
    So I guess you used your own setup?

    i'm beginner to linux systims so i don't know how to install any thing by my self

    now i can't start postfix

    [root@dwc ~]# service postfix start
    Starting postfix: [FAILED]
    -------------------------------------------------------

    thx

    That's because you have installed / activated sendmail. Sendmail and Postfix are mutual exclusive on the same server.

    Remove sendmail.
    Code:
    yum remove sendmail
